  • 1 Box Duncan Hines white cake mix
  • 3 Egg whites
  • 1 Cup water
  • ¼ Cup vegetable oil
  • 1½ Teaspoons peppermint extract
  • 1 Box White chocolate or vanilla Jello Instant pudding mix (or Candy Cane flavor but I couldn't find any that flavor)

  • Crushed peppermint
  1. Preheat oven at 350. Grease cake pan with oil.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine cake mix, egg whites, water, peppermint extract, and vegetable oil. Mix well with a mixer for 3-5 minutes.
  3. Pour into cake pan. Bake about 25 minutes until golden brown and when you insert a toothpick in the center it comes out clean.
  4. Set cake aside when done so it can cool.
  5. Prepare pudding by pouring pudding mix and 2 cups of milk in a blender. Blend for 5 minutes. Let set for 5 minutes to thicken. Add food coloring to desired color.
  6. Poke holes in top of cake with a wooden spoon. Pour pudding over cake making sure pudding goes into the holes. Top with Cool Whip and add crushed peppermints.

    I think this would good with Jell-O Candy Cane Instant Pudding and Pie Filling. Instead of vanilla or chocolate to make more festive.
